Transcript of "A Skills Beyond School Commentary on Israel"

  1. 1. A SKILLS BEYONDSCHOOL COMMENTARYON ISRAELSkills beyond School, the OECD Review of PostsecondaryVocational Education and Training
  2. 2. Strengths• A diverse range of different postsecondary options offer upskilling opportunities for most groups in most circumstances.• There is an active framework of government-led reform; both employers and unions are very keen to engage more fully with the vocational education and training system.
  3. 3. Strengths• Cost-efficiencies have been sought through a programme of contracting out training provision and training vouchers.• The examination system provides an effective means of upskilling. Some 70 000 people each year take the MOITAL-organised professional examinations.• Although data remain a challenge, research and analysis are well‑developed by international standards.
  4. 4. Challenges• The main programmes are managed and delivered without the extensive involvement of the social partners; employers and unions have now proposed a public council on VET.• Workplace training plays a limited role in postsecondary programmes, despite its outstanding attractions as a learning method.
  5. 5. Challenges• The programme of vocational courses to promote labour market insertion presents continuing challenges such as optimum course length, and access to provision given limited funding.• Graduates of practical engineering programmes sometimes have to repeat similar courses on entry to bachelor programmes in universities.
  6. 6. Challenges• Data on labour market outcomes and private sector training provision are limited. Analysis of stocks and flows of skills would also be helpful.• For the workforce of teachers and trainers, there are challenges in maintaining up-to- date industry knowledge, and in replacing an anticipated wave of retirements.
  7. 7. Challenges• Budgetary constraints and cutbacks mean that financial barriers could be preventing some students from fully benefiting from postsecondary vocational education and training.• Navigating through postsecondary courses and career paths will often require more accessible and effective guidance than is currently available.
  8. 8. Skills beyond School Reviews• Increasingly countries look beyond secondary school to more advanced qualifications to provide the skills needed in many of the fastest growing technical and professional jobs in OECD economies. The OECD study, Skills beyond School, is addressing the range of policy questions arising, including funding and governance, matching supply and demand, quality assurance and equity and access. The study will build on the success of the previous OECD study of vocational education and training Learning for Jobs which examined policy through 17 country reviews and a comparative report.
  9. 9. Skills beyond School Reviews• Full country policy reviews are being conducted in Austria, Denmark, Egypt, Germany, Israel, Korea, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (England), and the United States (with case studies of Florida, Maryland and Washington State). Shorter exercises leading to an OECD country commentary will be undertaken in Belgium (Flanders), Canada, Iceland, Romania, Spain, Sweden and in Northern Ireland and Scotland in the United Kingdom. Background reports will be prepared in all these countries, and in France, Hungary and Mexico. Further information is available on the OECD website www.oecd.org/education/vet
